Head teacher banned for bullying staff

A former head teacher has been banned from teaching after bullying staff and acting dishonestly, BBC is reporting.

Neil Wilkinson-McKie resigned as chief executive of Cornwall’s Roseland Multi Academy Trust and head teacher of The Roseland Academy in 2016.

A Teaching Regulation Agency panel found his conduct “fell significantly short of the standards expected”.

Two teachers who gave evidence to the misconduct panel said they had left the profession because of his actions.

The panel found that Mr Wilkinson-McKie had:

  • Treated six members of staff unfairly and, of those, bullied three
  • Used inappropriate and offensive language about four members of staff

Mr Wilkinson-McKie has been banned from teaching indefinitely and cannot teach in any school, sixth form college, relevant youth accommodation or children’s home in England.
